{Baghdad: Al Furat News} Today and yesterday night there witnessed rapid developments in the issue of the candidate of the next prime minister, as the chances of some began to fade and some of them weakened a lot and in return the emergence of other candidates.

A well-informed political source told Al-Furat News, “The President of the Republic, Barham Salih, is likely to settle his assignment to the candidate for prime minister at the beginning of next week,” stressing that “Saleh resumed his talks yesterday and upon his return from traveling abroad, and made extensive contacts that will continue until the file is resolved.”

“The president of the republic is scheduled to meet tomorrow, Tuesday, with representatives of the demonstrators to discuss the file of the next prime minister’s candidate and the conditions that must be met,” he added.

The source pointed out that “the list of candidates has undergone changes as some of the proposed names have lost their chances while other names have weakened a lot, and in the meantime new names have emerged as candidates for the site adopted by certain alliances.”

He continued, “The movement in this regard is progressive and was scheduled to be resolved next Thursday, but the weightings indicate that the settlement will be early next week.”

Faced with the pressure of the Iraqi street, the political parties are still unable to reach a solution to the crisis of choosing an alternative for the resigned prime minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi, after failing to assign several candidates after a large popular rejection of him.

The popular demonstrations and sit-ins continue in Tahrir Square in Baghdad and other governorates, with the number of martyrs rising to more than 600 demonstrators and injuring thousands of others.
